SIGGRAPH Asia in Hong Kong

SIGGRAPH has been developed into the most important computer graphics, animation and digital entertainment worldwide since 1974. Past SIGGRAPH conferences have been held in major cities across the United States, and since 2008, SIGGRAPH has started to hold conferences in Asia (known as SIGGRAPH Asia) in addition to the conferences held in the United States. By hosting SIGGRAPH Asia in Hong Kong, we provide local computer graphics and design practitioners with a world-class capability building opportunity to inspire their creativity and to enhance their skills, core competences, creative processes and competitiveness in computer graphics, digital art, animation and visual effects.
